Over the last number of months we’ve been working alongside the Corrymeela Community to help them programme a weekend festival to celebrate their 50th Birthday. Aperture will be a festival of diversity, arts, debate, politics, faith, music and celebration.
Poets, Musicians, Politicians, Circus Acts, Theologians, Debates, Games, Food, Surprises and Unexpected Opportunities…The Aperture festival will be a wonderful and temporary community for three full days on the north coast.
We will celebrate local and international peacebuilding. We will celebrate our common ground and our differences and we’ll explore how far we’ve come and how far we have to go. We will listen to voices often ignored and in a space of celebration, dialogue and diversity talk about our differences and celebrate the amazing work of community.
The programming is more or less complete now and you can see it on the link below

Although inspired by the spirit of Street […]

It’s been a year since I wrote a wee blog about how the Single Transferable Voting system works and now it’s time for another election. This time unfortunately we’re stuck with the ridiculous first past the post system, a system which leaves most people in the country feeling helpless because most seats in Northern Ireland are considered safe. I did […]
Right guys it’s Small Business Saturday so we’ve got our Small Business Santa Blog. As a small business we’re all about trying to support some small businesses and this year we’ve been making a deliberate effort to spend less money in big corporations and more in local business. Among the many joys that this has given us it has lead […]
This morning I got onto an argument on twitter with a young lady who was suggesting that in the current climate she didn’t believe in funding the arts. An 11-15% cut isn’t enough for her obviously, she wants to stop funding the arts altogether… cause y’know, the health service and that. To be fair I kind of lost the rag […]
